->''"I mean, talk about mixed signals! Just the night before, we're out to a pretty damn romantic dinner, and the next day, he calls me a minion!"''
-->-- '''Alice Evanson'''

''[[http://evilplan.thewebcomic.com/ Evil Plan]]'' is a webcomic by Creator/AlexisRoyce, about aspiring supervillain [[VillainProtagonist Tal A. Kinesis]], and his engineer second-in-command, Alice Evanson. Originally, it was mostly gag-a-day shots parodying supervillain cliches, but by now it's become a character-driven story, focused on the main characters' romance and Kinesis' [[TakeOverTheWorld bid for power]]. It's been updating weekly since 2007, with an archive of over 500 pages.
!!''Evil Plan'' provides examples of:
* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: That [[http://evilplan.thewebcomic.com/comics/868396/interlude-8-weird-even-for-flirting/ one night]] wasn't all bad. Plus there are a LOT of hints, such as [[spoiler: Kinesis staring in awe at Alice after her villainess costume change, Alice trying to seduce him just to apologise for her comment beforehand about William. And then there's terminology, where Alice openly admits she likes Kinesis.]]
* BookcasePassage: [[http://evilplan.thewebcomic.com/comics/194760/prologue-page-15-just-what-you-wanted/ In the form of a secret elevator.]]
* BreakTheCutie: Chapter 7 was pretty rough on the bright young hero, Kevin and this is ''before'' Kinesis has had a chance to make things personal.
** [[spoiler: [[KillTheCutie Will's actual backstory]], and his continued crush on Stan]]
*** Also could be considered for Dr. Kinesis' tragic backstory.
* CallingYourAttacks: Amazingman improvises the Amazing Punch during his first battle. The minions only realized he was a super hero after he invoked this trope.
* CharacterDevelopment: Kevin gets plenty in Chapter 7.
* ClarkKenting: [[http://evilplan.thewebcomic.com/comics/1484047/prologue-page-20-villains-dont-need-masks/ "A change of clothing and hair, and anyone can be a new person."]]
* CorporateSponsoredSuperhero: Members of The Company are put in a position where they sell their hero "brand" for the profit of The Company. Their methods of recruitment are [[WorkOffTheDebt morally ambiguous]].
* [[CreateYourOwnVillain Create Your Own Hero]]: Kevin only became Amazingman because of the telekenesis upgrade chip designed by Kinesis and completed by Alice.
* CrossOver: As of Chapter 7 we can now confirm Evil Plan takes place in the same continuity as Sire, though several months before the Sire story begins.
* DeathTrap: Subverted, usually. Lemon and Lime employ potentially a variety of lethal traps at their office entrance, solely for the sake of snapping humiliating pictures of the trespassers/invited guests.
* DoNotAdjustYourSet: Kinesis hacks in to all television network and web browsers to deliver his ultimatum to Amazingman.
* EarlyBirdCameo: [[http://evilplan.thewebcomic.com/comics/1590620/chapter-9-page-8-drinking-without-you/ Billy and Amical]] from ''[[{{Webcomic/Morphe}} morphE]]'' showed up in the background of a strip 6 months before the [=morphE=] webcomic was launched.
* ExtranormalPrison: The Panopticon super villain prison.
* HatesBeingTouched: Kinesis [[http://evilplan.thewebcomic.com/comics/241340/we-should-all-be-so-lucky/ hates]] [[http://evilplan.thewebcomic.com/comics/432775/really-quite-friendly/ human]] [[http://evilplan.thewebcomic.com/comics/465384/hero/ contact.]] Even the [[http://evilplan.thewebcomic.com/comics/494205/welcome-to-stanleys-home/ nice]] [[http://evilplan.thewebcomic.com/comics/869592/interlude-7-no-touchy/ kind.]]
* HeroAntagonist: Kevin/Amazingman.
* HollywoodSpelling: Averted. Before William reveals to Kinesis [[spoiler:then known as Stanley]] that he's gay, he quickly tells him that he used to date people by the names of Aaron, Adrian, and Don. Kinesis hears them as Erin, Adrienne, and Dawn.
* MadScientistLaboratory: Naturally.
* MoreDakka: [[http://evilplan.thewebcomic.com/comics/1465332/chapter-8-page-9-clear-the-way/ Stan applies this concept to his telekenesis.]] [[http://evilplan.thewebcomic.com/comics/1474419/chapter-8-page-10-nice-try/ It looked impressive, anyway.]]
* LethalChef: That vat of fruitcake acid had to come from someone. And that some place is Kinesis' loving, unknowing younger sister.
* MinionWithAnFInEvil: The minions seem to think that Kinesis' cruelty is simply the way their leader shows them he loves them. Hint: It isn't.
* PersonalityChip: Computer has a will of its own. [[spoiler:Becomes an IncrediblyLamePun when it turns out that the chip was mapped from someone named WILL-iam.]]
* PresidentSuperhero: Emmie Oakley, retired hero and President of the United States.
* ProfessorGuineaPig: Kinesis is the first test subject for the Telekinetic Amplification Chip.
* PunchClockVillains: More or less everyone in the comic. Alice even gets hired on through a legitimate job posting.
* RecklessGunUsage: [[http://evilplan.thewebcomic.com/comics/1474419/chapter-8-page-10-nice-try/ Mae is not pleased]] when Stan tries shooting a dozen guns at once with his telekenetic ability.
* SecondLawMyAss: Computer seems to [[http://evilplan.thewebcomic.com/comics/391044/definitive-evidence/ never]] miss an [[http://evilplan.thewebcomic.com/comics/513906/wrapping-the-gift/ opportunity ]] to [[http://evilplan.thewebcomic.com/comics/929713/chapter-5-page-10-two-point-oh/ stick it ]] to its [[http://evilplan.thewebcomic.com/comics/964746/chapter-5-page-19-what-he-always-wanted/ creator]].
* SharedUniverse: ''[[http://www.mortifer.smackjeeves.com/ Mortifer]]'' and ''Evil Plan'' have had a couple of crossovers, as have the artists' other works, ''[[http://www.fringehappy.smackjeeves.com/ Fringe Happy]]'' and ''[[http://www.sire.smackjeeves.com/ Sire]]''.
** Also, since [[spoiler:Piper appears in both Mortifer and Fringe Happy]], we can assume that those two take place in the same universe, as well.
** In chapter seven, we learn that [[spoiler:Paul Enfield was Kevin's stepbrother, making Evil Plan and Sire linked directly.]]
* SheIsNotMyGirlfriend: When Lemon and Lime first meet Alice, they immediately assume that she's Kinesis' girlfriend. Alice's words say no, but her expression says [[http://evilplan.thewebcomic.com/comics/367192/dont-assume-that/ differently]].
* ShoutOut: [[http://evilplan.thewebcomic.com/comics/352763/looting-the-tardis/ Kinesis actually raids the]] [[Series/DoctorWho TARDIS]].
** [[http://evilplan.thewebcomic.com/comics/1417863/guest-comic-muse-academy/ Kinesis invents]] [[VideoGame/{{Portal2}} combustible limes]].
--->'''Kinesis:''' ''[monologue]'' I call it... [[ExpospeakGag the genetically modified ignescent Citrus Aurantifolia!]]\\
'''Alice:''' You mean a combustible lime? Aperture Science is filing a lawsuit as we speak.\\
'''Kinesis:''' Cave Johnson can eat my bankrupt...
* StartOfDarkness: The flashback chapters.
* TakeOverTheWorld: Of course.
* UnequalPairing: Alice and Stanley. The employee/boss dynamic is the second biggest issue with their ship, right after Stan's lack of interest in romance.
* UnfazedEveryman: Alice. It takes her some time to get used to the whole supervillain thing.
** Also, [[HeroAntagonist Kevin]]. He's a pretty plain college boy.
* VillainProtagonist: Dr. Kinesis has organized a bank robbery, hacked the computers and TV feed of Urbane City, committed cold-blooded murder, and abused his henchwoman. Yeah, he's the protagonist.
** Lemon and Lime also qualify. Those two lovable lesbians do black market business and steal patents from their rightful owners.
* VillainsOutShopping: Anguish at the start of Chapter 14 is revealed to lurk on internet imageboards and pose as a normal person for kicks.
* VillainSong: By Andrew of Music/SongsToWearPantsTo, no less. Can be downloaded [[http://www.suturesound.com/stwpt/tracks/0540_evil_plan_theme.mp3 here.]]
* WeCanRebuildHim: How Amazingman survived his fall from the water tower. Shame it came with an impossibly large hospital bill he must work off now.
* WeUsedToBeFriends: Kinesis [[spoiler:Stanley Alfred, (back in college)]] and William supposedly sever ties after [[spoiler:a fight about the telekinetic chip]].
** Subverted with the reveal that [[spoiler:William died in an accident when trying to install a telekinetic chip inside of him, and that Kinesis installed a personality clone into Computer.]]
* WildMassGuessing: Nobody seems to be able to agree on what William's plotting.
* WorkOffTheDebt: Kevin and Agent are debt-slaves to The Company due to their expensive medical procedures which bring fallen heroes from the jaws of death. As long as they are profitable as heroes they will not be allowed to fall.
